Zambia’s covid19 test positivity has continued to be above 10% after the country recorded 7 deaths and 487 new cases out of 4,902 tests conducted in the last 24 hours.

Ministry of health Permanent secretary for technical services Kennedy Malama says the 10% test positivity signals sustained community transmission.
